Hainer, Samson win Class 2A state titles
DES MOINES — Colfax-Mingo senior Connor Hainer and Collins-Maxwell-Baxter junior Zach Samson have led their respective events all season, and Thursday was the day they got to officially claim those events as their own.
Hainer brought home the county’s first state championship by winning the Class 2A long jump, and Samson followed up not too much later by taking the Class 2A shot put at Drake Stadium. It was both competitors’ first championships.
“I’m finally a state champion, which I’ve been working hard for, so it paid off,” Hainer said. “I’m really just speechless. It’s an awesome feeling.”
